Edward, London Experienced

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very light, slim bezel. Two HDMI inputs, with one doubling as MHL which means that it can be used as a display for my tablet.
Superb value and can't be faulted for the price.
Bad points:
The paper guide and the pdf manual are misleading in stating setup as automatic and make no mention of a crucial process. Namely, the video input needs to be selected from the bottom right bezel menu. There are three inputs, VGA, HDMI1 and HDMI2 and the appropriate one selected. Otherwise an error message No Cable Connection is displayed. I had assumed that the monitor was faulty. This should be in the Guides.

James, Reading Fussy tech guy

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Stunning contrast and vibrancy.
Nice slim design, doesn't look too big on the desk.
Good amount of options.
Colour range is impressive (especially if you make sure to use full 0-255 RGB in your GPU driver settings).
Overall though, this is a stunning monitor for the price.
Bad points:
1080p makes certain fonts look a little fuzzy or jagged close up despite Windows ClearType enable.
Slight sheen and reflectiveness means you want a dark wall behind you.
Touch controls are a nice idea but actually a bit fiddly to use.

Switch to one of the four preset Low Blue Light Modes from OSD hot key (Multimedia – 30% reduction, Web-surfing – 50% reduction, Office – 60% reduction, Reading – 70% reduction), and reward your eyes without having to lose the visual enjoyment.
